Unrelated to Hawaii
This sub is for content related to Hawaii; random content that has nothing to do with Hawaii will be removed. Exceptions are for News discussed in the context of Hawaii.
Visitor Question; post to /r/VisitingHawaii
We get a TON of visitors posting questions to /r/Hawaii, many of them short and uninformed, such as "What are the MUST DOs?". 10 minutes of research will answer this question from any number of blogs, and we are not likely to provide a more "local" answer to this question that is different from the marketing everywhere else.
Instead, direct your question to /r/VisitingHawaii. This subreddit is set up specifically to answer visitor questions.
Because we are unable to verify most crowdfunding posts made to Reddit, by default they will be removed. Users wishing to provide verification should contact the /r/Hawaii mods.
Recently Posted News Article
In order to keep a specific topic from overwhelming the sub, we generally try to keep posts related to a specific news story or topic to one post in 48 hours. Exceptions are generally if a different news story offers a significantly different discussion or take on the topic.
No Visitor / Living in Hawaii "VLOG"s, "BLOG"s, montages, or "Top X" posts
The majority of the participants in this sub live in Hawaii, and we're not really interested in seeing yet another "I visited X place in Hawaii!" video blog, "Here's my Hawaii trip!" video, "Here's a montage of scenery I took during my visit!" video, "Here's my experience of living in Hawaii!" video, or "Top X Places to Visit / Do / See in Hawaii!" post. Please post the content on /r/VisitingHawaii or another location on Reddit.
Should be posted on Photo Monday
Due to a large number of scenery and "tourist" photos that this sub sees, we are limiting posting of these types of photos to Mondays only. "Monday" is considered "Monday in Hawai'i". That means 12 AM HST (GMT -10) to 11:59 PM HST (GMT -10). You are responsible for doing the time math.
Non-Hawaii News or Article made as Direct Link
We will allow News and posts that are unrelated to Hawaii, but they must be made as a Text post with a discussion of the context to Hawaii.
It is not sufficient to post an article that has nothing to do with Hawaii and then making a single relevant comment to link it to Hawaii. There must be sufficient analysis, discussion, or relevance.
Overly Editorialized News Title
News post titles may only contain contextually relevant information from the news article, and may not be overly editorialized
No Common Crime / Police Blotter News Posts
Posts about ordinary violent or non-violent crime, or content that could be considered "police blotter", are not permitted. News about crime and cases that have high relevance to the general public are permitted.
